Aston Villa midfielder Gardner joins Brighton on loan

first_img Gary Gardner Brighton have taken Aston Villa midfielder Gary Gardner on loan until January.The 22-year-old has suffered serious injury troubles during his time at Villa and has made just 18 appearances for the club following his debut in 2011.He is yet to start a competitive game under Paul Lambert and spent a brief spell on loan at Sheffield Wednesday last season .Now he has joined Wednesday’s Championship rivals Brighton, and could make his Seagulls debut in their Capital One Cup second round game at Swindon on Tuesday night.Brighton boss Sami Hyypia told the club’s official website: “Gary is a quality midfielder who we have been aware of for some time. When we knew he was available, we wanted to bring him here as he will give us another quality option in the middle of the park.“There are areas of the squad where we would like more options, and midfield was one of those areas. We have Dale Stephens out injured, but more importantly, given the considerable demands of the Championship, I want to be able to rotate the squad.“Gary has had a tough couple of seasons due to injury, but he showed during a spell with Sheffield Wednesday last season that he is over those problems. We hope this loan spell will benefit everyone: Gary, us and Aston Villa.“He is the type of midfielder who is active and mobile, but very importantly he has real quality on the ball – and is also capable of producing things from set-pieces.” 1last_img read more

FARMER CAUGHT WITH ILLEGAL DIESEL IN JEEP HAS CONVICTION DISMISSED

first_imgA DONEGAL farmer originally fined €5,000 for driving his jeep with illegal green diesel has had has conviction overturned on appeal.Jeffrey McKinney, from Knockbrack, Letterkenny, had admitted having the illegal fuel in his vehicle when it was checked by Customs officers in August 2013.But he told Judge John O’Hagan at a District Court Appeal at the Circuit Court that he didn’t know there was agricultural diesel in his Nissan Jeep because his brother had accidentally put the wrong fuel in the vehicle the night before. Mr McKinney, represented by specialist Dublin tax lawyer John McLaughlin, told how he had called his brother from the joint garda/revenue checkpoint to make sure he had filled his jeep with the correct diesel.His brother Keith told the judge that he had never filled vehicles at the farm before.He said he had taken a call from his brother the evening before asking him to fill the jeep with diesel as he had to go to the Raphoe Mart the next day.He said there were two diesel tanks in the family farmyard, one with green diesel for the tractors and one with white diesel for road vehicles.Keith McKinney said it had been his mistake in using the wrong diesel. He says he told Customs this in a letter a few days later.Defence counsel Mr McLaughlin argued that Jeffrey McKinney hadn’t knowingly used the green diesel as set out in the legislation and he wasn’t reckless in using it. He said there was no criminal intent on behalf of his client.Judge John O’Hagan said farmers should clearly mark the outside of their fuel tanks in their farmyards to prevent a repeat of this incident.He said he accepted Keith McKinney’s evidence however and that there was no criminal intent on the part of his brother to knowingly use a vehicle fuelled by green diesel.He overturned the conviction.FARMER CAUGHT WITH ILLEGAL DIESEL IN JEEP HAS CONVICTION DISMISSED was last modified: February 14th, 2016 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:courtCUSTOMSdonegalfarmergreen dieselletterkennylast_img read more
